Pakistan captain Babar Azam said spinner Abrar Ahmed “dominated” in his Test debut against England in Multan.

Abrar had been performing well in domestic cricket and got the opportunity to play in the series after earning a call-up.

He started with a bang, taking seven wickets in the first innings of the match. Overall, the 24-year-old finished with 17 wickets in two Tests at an average of 27.17.

“Abrar [Ahmed] dominated in Multan,” Azam was quoted as saying by Cricwick.

Abrar was subsequently selected for the two-Test series against New Zealand, where he picked up 11 wickets at an average of 43.63.
